LiA hits it nicely...to me, its akin to how diff Clapton was post CREAM: and in both cases, theres a dropoff n intensity & energy that just doesn't grab me the way the prior lineups/bands do...goes wout sayin, I like jerrys solo album, the first, n which he really just 'does the DEAD' w billy, by himself...saw JGB & Kingfish many times n 70s & the latter always outplayed the former, n the view of many at the time.

Hey, I saw Kingfish - they were cool. Remember their guitarist - a total young whiz? Sounded just like Jerry. The John Kadlecik of the 70s.

And they had a song real similar to Eyes. It's amazing what pops up in the brain. I wonder what ever happened to him?

That's so funny you mention that: the HS DEAD cover band I am always talking about did that song, and we called it "Kingfish Eyes of the World"! (I think it was "hypnotized"? or some such).

I have a relative who lives in Marin who sort of knows Hoddinott, and very coincidentally she and I were talking about kingfish about a year ago. At that time she had seen him about 2 years prior in San Fran looking strung out on something. I guess he can still play though, and gets some work at clubs.

That's too bad; always liked him.
